Meghan McCain, daughter of the late Senator John McCain and co-host on “The View”, gave birth Monday to a baby girl, naming her Liberty Sage McCain Domenech.
McCain and little Liberty are said to be healthy and doing well.
McCain announced her pregnancy in March, shortly after many states announced safety precautions because of the coronavirus pandemic. McCain remained at home during her pregnancy, being remote for her appearances on “The View.”

She was private about her pregnancy, announcing in May she is choosing to “guard our (growing) families privacy as much as is possible. I believe children have a right to privacy and hope you will all understand as we navigate this as much as possible going forward without sacrificing our comfort or safety.”
She said rude people “have really ruined so much for so many on social media and I learned a lot of hard lessons about cruelty that comes with being open and vulnerable about my personal life during my Dads cancer fight.”
After announcing her pregnancy earlier this year, McCain shared she was surprised and excited.
“This has not been a smooth road to motherhood,” she said, “like a lot of women, it was not a straight line.”
She did share honest and relatable moments about being pregnant. Saying in a tweet just two weeks ago, “Every woman who has ever been pregnant deserves a medal of recognition.”
